Shaping the Future
On 9 November 2017 we hosted our annual construction seminar for clients, contacts and those in the construction industry. This is the fourth year that Cripps Pemberton Greenish have held an annual seminar and once again the seminar was supported by Keating Chambers. The title of the event was ‘Shaping the Future’ and appropriately was held in our new offices at Number 22, Mount Ephraim. The speakers included our own Claire Barwick and James Blyth who spoke about recent developments in the law relating to contractual interpretation and costs recovery in adjudication proceedings respectively. We were also delighted to welcome Tom Lazur of Keating Chambers who explained the effect of the recent Supreme Court decision in MT Hojgaard (an important decision on obligations as to quality of materials and work) and Gordon Young (Hazle McCormack Young) and Malcolm Clarke (Baxall Construction), who shared their experiences of the use of technology such as Building Information Modelling and collaborative working practices to reduce build time and costs on construction projects.
The event was once again well attended and we were delighted to receive positive feedback from our guests. The construction team would like to express our thanks to Tom, Gordon and Malcolm for their contributions and all our guests for their support in attending the event. We hope for an even more successful event in 2018 and look forward to seeing as many of our blog subscribers next year!
